    (If you do not see the arrow, share your own screen, then click stop share.)
  2. Click on “Advanced Sharing Options”
  3. On “Who Can Share” click on “all participants.” Keep the third setting at “only host.”
  4. Click the x in the upper right of the dialog box to close it.


If desired: You can also change this setting in your CUWAA.ZOOM.US profile by following these steps:

  1. Log into your profile at CUWAA.ZOOM.US
  2. In the navigation panel, click Settings.
  3. Under In Meeting (Basic), scroll down to Screen Sharing heading

Pregnant and Parenting: Supporting Our Students

This program was presented at Concordia University Wisconsin, Mequon campus on Monday March 9, 2020. Below is program description and resources.

Pregnant and Parenting: Supporting Our Students
Monday March 9th, 2020  12:10 to 1:00pm Lakeshore Room, Mequon Campus
With Elizabeth Polzin (AVP – Student Success), Jan Chapman (Director, ARC), and Amber Schiessl, Director of Graduate Enrollment. Introduced by Mercedes Fisher.

This program is for faculty and staff.

Today’s students include many who are “post-traditional” in at least one respect, such as students who are veterans, parents, 25 years of age or older, or work full time while attending school. These students are undergraduate as well as graduate students, and may be found on campus, online and in our accelerated programs. Nationally, 26% of all postsecondary students in the U.S. are parents (PPNI, 2018) https://pnpi.org/post-traditional-students/

During this session, we will consider how to support and encourage success among students who are pregnant and parenting. Topics include policies and resources for pregnant students, resources for student parents, stories from student parents, and effective institutional and instructional practices that support pregnant or parenting students. Free lunch is available for the first 20 faculty and staff who register.

This is the first in a series of quarterly Lunch ‘n Learns focusing on strategies to align post-traditional learners with students success. Post-traditional learners have been a growing presence in America’s postsecondary education institutions since the late 1970s and now makeup close to 60 percent of enrolled undergraduates. Post-traditional learners are students who frequently must balance life, work, and education. These students are typically ages 25 and older, care for dependents, are veterans or in the military, and work full time while enrolled.
